Check your battery if everything else seems fine. Otherwise, I would need more information about what the car is doing when you try to start it.

My 97 Honda Civic runs good and up until now, no problems, but when I turn on the key to start it, nothing happens. Have new battery, fully charged, lights on dash do not go off when I turn key to start. ...


Bypass the clutch switch. If the car starts then replace the switch.
If this will not work, then you need to troubleshoot the starter, from the fuse up to solenoid. Might be anything from a bad fuse, bad relay, bad solenoid, corroded starter copper contacts, or a bad starter. Hope this will help.

Well, since the battery is on the right side in the engine compartment and you said you cleaned the terminals. Did you spray the terminals off with a hose and water? If so the distributor is located not far from the battery and you may have gotten the distributor a little moist in side which can cause it to nots tart or run rough. Pull the distributor cap and check for moisture. If wet just dry the cap and replace it .
